Ezeh said the  two suspects,  identified as Emeka Anene and Nwoye Chinedu, both indigenes of the community, were arrested on Sept. 14  by a vigilante team of same community.

“Two were caught red handed vandalising a transformer belonging to EEDC, located at Uruayom-Mgbakwu community in Awka North Local Government Area of Anambra.

“The suspects were subsequently handed over to Mgbakwu police station for further interrogation and possible prosecution,” he said.

Ezeh, however, expressed concerns over series of attacks on both EEDC installations and its members of  staff within the South-East.

“The management of EEDC frowns at these acts that impact negatively on its operations.

“The company will stop at nothing in ensuring that anyone found culpable will be prosecuted accordingly,” he added.
